Abstract:

Some different variants of the self-absorption method giving the possibility to determine the optical density kappa O l in the region of the center of a spectral line have been described. The calculation formula and a table of data are given for 1 the method of the variance of the absorption length, and 2 the method of one and two mirrors. The precision of the determination of kappa O l and for correspondent products of the transition probability by concentration of the atoms AkiNi and AkiNk is considered. The influence of the hyperfine structure of a line on the experimental results is found. Some experimental data for the investigated discharge in neon are given. Author
